Bottle from Brennan’s. Pours a very dark brown with garnet highlights. Almost no head and almost no lacing. Gotta enjoy that reddish tint in the color though. Aroma has roasted malts, cocoa powder and some earthiness. Taste is of sweet caramel, dark fruit, some chocolate, faint coffee and a dry saltiness that I would say is oyster. Finishes sweet and somewhat short and dry. Hmmm. I would say the "best" oyster stout I have had, somewhat damning with faint praise.

12oz bottle. Pours dark brown, almost black with a light tan head. Imagined that I was tasting oysters but not sure I really was. More noticeable were the coffee notes and nutty roasted malt flavors. Went well with the crab cakes we had for dinner tonight.

JMerritt (1915) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - JAN 16, 2016
Bottled. Black with a thin, bright white head. Nose is of very light dark chocolate, mild brine and smoke - quite interesting. Chocolate malts are much more prominent in the flavor, with mild, meaty and salty undertones. Finish has a bit more smoke and light coffee. Quite an eclectic mix of flavors.
